Shame. I liked him.
One of my favourite songs ever.
Not quite confirmed yet! Although not promising.
Aye, he ain't Free Falling just yet.
He's in a better plac.... Oh wait.
Sooo sad another great talent lost. RIP
Well that was a messy way of reporting it, wasn't it!
It was confirmed hours ago!
It wasn't when I posted!
They announced it, then denied it... then confirmed it.

Had been hospitalised for around a week. .
Oh, shame. Had forgotten all about him. Haven't seen him in anything for quite a while. Found him quite funny.
I liked him, that's a shock!!
not really - quite a lot of others liked him too.
Thanks Wingy! That gives me loads of confidence to a long a healthy life ahead of me! Just as an aside, I am waiting for a knee replacement and saw the anaesthetist last week. Worried me a bit when he told me that it was a straight-forward op, but in my case they will be having a bed standing by on the Critical Care Unit! I just hope they have the ol' jump leads to hand!

On the Chase tonight a question was : How old was Florence Nightingale when she died ? The answer was she popped off aged 90. I thought people didn't get a long life in her days ? She was living in the days of loads of deadly illnesses, and wasn't she a nurse during the Crimean War ?
That's quite surprising, seeing what work she did and who she must have come into contact with.
Just googled Florence Nightingale. For thirty years she was confined to her bed. She had lots of illnesses, so from aged 60 till her demise aged 90 she was bed ridden !
She applied for sickness benefit but was turned down, Ian Duncan Smith told her she was fit for work !
I think a few on here know of Trailer Park Boys?
John Dunsworth/Mr Lahey just announced dead at 71. Shitwinds are here Bobandy

Fats Domino has died.
Rock and roll legend Fats Domino dies
Wow! Didn't even know he was still alive.
I'm ordering a pizza tonight in memory!
You have a pizza place down there called Fats?
He influenced just about everyone who came after him.
A giant in the emergence of rock and roll.
I only really know the two songs Ain't that a Shame and Blueberry Hill, but what two great records.
